Russell 2000 lags all other Indices

The Market:

The Russell 2000 (IWM) was the only index on the WSC Scoreboard to finish lower on the session which was led by the Dow (DIA).

Most of the indices on the WSC Scoreboard finished the session higher but HeathCare (XLV) was hit hard finishing 1.33% lower.  XLV remains only one of two sectors still up YTD but was hurt today by comments from Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton who, after a privately held company, Turing Pharmaceuticals, announced a 5,000% price increase in its treatment for toxoplasmosis, called specialty drug prices “outrageous” and vowed to lay out a plan to address the issue.

We launched a new Sectors Page where each day you can see the performance of the individual stock components of the sectors listed on the WSC Scoreboard and HERE is a link to today’s XLV performance. **Spoiler alert — there was a lot of Red but Aetna (AET) was a bright spot finishing up 2.28%.**
